Hovering near a key support
On September 18, 2017, Tesla stock posted an all-time high of $389.61 and then turned negative. On October 2, 2017, it settled at $341.53 with minor gains of ~0.13% for the session. An immediate resistance lies near $367, followed by a key resistance at an all-time high of $389.61. An early breach of the $367 resistance level could attract fresh buying pressure going forward.
In the last three sessions, Tesla stock has been hovering just above the crucial support level near $338. A violation of this support level could attract renewed selling pressure in the coming sessions. Its 14-day RSI (relative strength index) indicator was hovering below the line of equilibrium at 40.5, suggesting weakening momentum.
3Q17 deliveries data
